Added DiffLines:

* Geofram Bornhald's death at the end of ''The Great Hunt.'' He launches a clearly futile attack against the Seanchan army (including combat channelers and honest to God dinosaurs) occupying Falme on ''foot'' knowing he and his men will certainly die, purely because it's the right thing to do, and basically "Fuck it, someone needs to." The Children of the Light are some of the best soldiers in the universe, but are also the most fantastically dogmatic and racist; their uniforms immediately conjure either Crusaders or the KKK, depending on one's historical frame of reference. Despite this, they're also the first major faction to do battle with what at the time appears to be the series' Big Bad faction and despite being heavily outnumbered, stage a genuinely heroic last stand, buying enough time for Mat to sound the Horn and turn the tide.

* Moiraine, despite being TheObiWan and probably one of the weakest channelers in the main cast, has second-highest kill count on Forsaken. Only Rand the Hero of Destiny has more. She beat one by pegging him with a DangerousForbiddenTechnique while he was in the middle of an epic swordfight with Rand, and the other, she TACKLED THROUGH A DIMENSIONAL PORTAL. That's right, Moiraine defeated one of the most powerful female channelers to ever live with ''her bare hands''. Moiraine is, for the record, also a VERY small woman.

* Rodel Ituralde resists Compulsion, the highest form of mind control, with sheer willpower, refusing to give the order that will break the back of the defensive forces holding Tha'kandar. Elyas knocked him down, but until then Ituralde ''did not give in''.

* Padan Fain proves to the shadow that he's not a mere darkfriend any more. How? By NAILING A MYRDRAAL (To most humans the manifestation of fear) TO A BARN DOOR. While it was alive (the myrdraal, that is, not the door).

*** And doesn't ''doesn't even realize it'', utterly shocking Egwene. This is like if someone from our world casually caught a ''nuke''. Perrin Aybara: Telarian'rhod Badass.

* AMOL: a'Lan Mandragoran, the most badass muggle in the whole freaking world [[spoiler: kills Demandred, who's spent the whole Last Battle running around in full HeroKiller mode. And then, a few minutes after everyone figures that he had to resort to a HeroicSacrifice to [[TakingYouWithMe take the Forsaken down with him]], stands up, battered but alive, and breaks the enemy lines by hefting his severed head in one hand.]]

** Literally a second a way from [[spoiler: [[UnderestimatingBadassery being balefired by Taim]], Androl manages to summon enough Power to make a portal the size of a coin...[[LetsGetDangerous which absorbs Taim's shot]]. [[BigDamnHeroes Exactly when Perrin shut down the Dreamspike following Cyndane's instructions.]] When a whole firing squad of channelers try to fry him with Fire weaves, he uses his portals to send the attacks back. [[BewareTheNiceOnes Then he turns the entire floor into a portal and sends several Darkfriends tumbling hundreds of feet to their deaths]].]]

*** Which leads to a semi-meta CMOA. [[spoiler:Demandred, one of the last surviving Forsaken and FourStarGeneral is obsessed with Rand/Lews Therin Telamon. He HATES him. If anyone in fiction could be said to be consumed by hatred, it's Demandred. He spends the entire Last Battle coordinating the Shadow's forces and demanding that Rand face him. But a different Ta'veren is on the field: Matt. And he wins. Demandred isn't Rand's EvilCounterpart, he's '''Matt's'''.]]
